3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, hoppy nose with citrus, grapefruit and a bit of candy. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a washing watery consistency and head. Flavour follows the nose with some malt sweetness and a good hop sharpness - notes of dry, estery tang making it moreish and thirst-quenching with a long, dry finish. The brewer has clearly taken a lot from best in breed APAs and endeavoured to produce similar. The results, while still needing some work, are pretty good.

Good pale ale. Left a large head, nice citrus flavour. Kind of like the little creatures. Easy to drink, gone before I knew it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small white head. Clings to the glass and leaves a frothy head. Heavy caramel malts and piney hops on the nose. Pine and citrus hops combine with sweet caramel malts. Works nicely and balances well in the taste. Nice beer. Easy drinkability. Reminds me a lot of Little Creatures Pale Ale. Works well

Pours a slightly cloudy light gold with a nice light sweet citrus aroma. Has a decent citrus zesty flavour that is nicely balance with the medium IBU. To sum up a very nice aussie pale and i could see my self drinking a 6 pack of these on a hot summer day like today.

Very nice, considering the light abv it has great body and aroma. Nice apricotaroma, body is a bit thin but great bitter finish

Bottle. The hops seemed a little dulled and the malt soapy. Not drinking as good as the others I’ve tried.

Excellent fruity taste with hints of passionfruit. My wife and I drank this at the brewery and now buy it regularly. Easily our most favorite beer beer. That and their nut brown ale

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows tropical fruit, resinous hops and lots of sweet clean malt. Textbook new-world pale ale.
Similar amount of malt upon tasting, very sweet, lots of caramel. The hops are not forgotten, with more tropical fruit and resin. Finishes with a bold bitterness that can’t quite keep the malt in check.
Carbonation could be higher to dry out the finish a little.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 Previous tasting note is spot on. Lots of tropical and passion fruit on the nose; very pure and lifted. Palate is dry with minerals and pepper and quite a step away from what the aromas promise. Notwithstanding the lean flavours very sessionable and the dry structure should be applauded.
